Spiritual Commentary: Take It To Heart
Beloved, we need to get back to the future of taking God's Word into our hearts. It will cause a rekindling of our joy and dare I say passion, in living for God and his will! Far too often as believers we engage the enemy at head level in order to enter into committed obedience and service. And if the truth be told we often do this without the proper battle dress, the helmet of salvation. (Ephesians 6:10-18) We must not forget that it is at the level of the heart that our battles will be won! The obedience and the service we find ourselves struggling with without victory is the obedience and service our hearts have not totally taken up God's Word on. Beloved, once Godâ€™s Word gets in our hearts we will find that we have indeed been granted the empowerment promised through Christ and the Holy Spirit we need to enable us to walk passionately in all that Godâ€™s Word counsels.
Honestly, the struggle most of us has is with letting God's Word have a real and permanent place on our hearts. So let us pray for ourselves and one another that where we have put up barriers in our hearts against Godâ€™s Word that â€śOur Fatherâ€ť will open our hearts to his Word. Let us pray that our hearts will be painted and wallpapered with Godâ€™s Word and that we might rejoice in this renewed scheme to fervently and passionately walk in Godâ€™s ways!" God's Word in your heart makes all the difference! â€˘
